It’s World Oceans Day! 🌊 💕 🍫 🐚 If you love the coast, there’s no better time to plan a day-trip or longer staycation. Here are 5 reasons to join us in #Pittenweem...🌊 Like a delightful chocolate seashell that melts on the tongue, slowly revealing yet more of its richness and flavour, Pittenweem is the kind of place that truly enchants, inviting you to linger a little longer. Discover rambling cliff paths, fishing boats jostling in the harbour, a labyrinth of narrow wynds, little boutiques, cafes and galleries and be hypnotised by the sea, as time appears to slide into a gentle rhythm with the tides.
🌊 It's now common (and scientific) knowledge that the sound of the sea encourages us to unwind, while ocean blues are calming and inspiring.
🌊 Studies show that eating dark chocolate (minimum 70% cacao) reduces inflammation and stress, while improving memory, immunity and mood. So add our luxurious hot chocolate or chocolate bars - handmade in Pittenweem - to your coastal picnic. We have a full menu of gourmet savouries and cooling refreshments, too. All available in the cafe, on-the-go, and with our bespoke picnic hampers.
🌊 We believe in protecting what we love. So, wherever possible we choose infinitely ♻️ recyclable glass, paper, or compostable packaging. We minimise food waste and shop local, sourcing highest quality ingredients from producers around the East Neuk and Scotland.
🌊 Pittenweem has become a haven for wild swimming! Join the shoals of merfolk at the recently refurbished tidal pool at West Braes or dip your toes in the water at historic - and postcard perfect - West Shore.
Tempted? We hope to ‘sea’ you soon… 🌊💕
Happy World Oceans Day!

The WILDHOOD Way
We’ve doubled down on our commitment to helping children experience ‘the WILDHOOD way’ by creating opportunities for little imaginations to roam free – wherever they are.
We’re also passionate about supporting WILDHOOD artists, performers and participants - aka WILDHOOD Legends - and collaborating with independent people, creative businesses, and brands that beautifully align with the WILDHOOD ethos.
Making Connections That Matter
So we’re gathering the WILDHOOD Family in one exclusive online base camp: a happy place to meet, play, sing, craft, make, cook, stretch, dance, grow, and most importantly, stay connected to each other - and the spirit of WILDHOOD.
By joining the WILDHOOD Family, you'll also be directly supporting creativity in Scotland. Unsurprisingly, we’re all very excited about getting back to what we love doing; entertaining, inspiring, and educating our tribe of mini festival go-ers!
Over to you kiddos…
Sitting comfortably? Then we shall begin…
Think weekly clubs, live events, festival-site films, exclusive offers, competitions and lots, lots more.
You talked. We listened. After a year of almost relentless isolation, you told us you’re more eager than ever to meet like-minded people in your own area. High five emojis to that! And maybe we can go one better…
Camp Fire Connections
Thanks to the magical technologies of membership, you can choose to share your own location and meet up with others – online or in-person – from the WILDHOOD Family. If you’re keen, we can even host WILDHOOD Locals. These small, live gatherings – based on the big WILDHOOD Festival - will help spark new connections in the place you call home. So come sit by the campfire. Strike up conversations, kindle friendships, and help us celebrate the WILDHOOD way, every day.
Meanwhile, THANK YOU so much for continuing to support and share the spirit of WILDHOOD. Hope our paths cross again very soon.
See you back at base camp?
